The murder-mystery event will be hosted by Tall Tales Mysteries.

For North East fans of the BBC show, The Traitors, an exciting event will be taking place in the city.

The Traitors aired on BBC earlier this year for its first ever series hosted by Claudia Winkleman, and gripped the nation. The show followed a group of people living together, with some given the title of ‘faithful’, while others were ‘traitors’.

In a murder mystery style game, the ‘traitors’ had to ‘murder’ people within the ‘faithful’ group, while trying to avoid being caught and named as a ‘traitor’.

Each ‘murdered’ person would then have to leave the show, and miss out on winning a monetary prize, while if ‘traitors’ were caught, they too would have to leave.

In intense, edge of your seat viewing, three ‘faithfuls’ eventually won the monetary prize, with the last ‘traitor’ making it to the final before being caught.

The show has been renewed for a second series, and is said to be back on our screens early next year.

Fans of the BBC show may remember Amanda Lovett, who was firm-favourite with viewers. The 54-year-old estate agent from Swansea was given ‘traitor’ status, and played the game incredibly well before being caught.

Amanda will be joining the Newcastle guests, and will play as one of the suspects in the murder mystery.

Tickets for the event cost £45 and can be purchased from the Tall Tales Mysteries website.
